Shadow Call (Kaitan Chronicles, #2)The Little Book of Hygge: The Danish Way to Live Well

Shadow Call by Adrianne Strickland & Michael Miller (ARC)
I couldn't help signing up for the blog tour and after re-reading the first book I'm now powering through this sequel! Just like Shadow Run it began a bit awkward but once more I found myself hit with a shocking twist about page 40 and now the story is off and running!

The Little Book of Hygge by Meik Wiking (HBK)
After reading a book on Lagom I wanted more in a similar vein and picked up books on Hygge and Lykke. I'm not connecting to Hygge as much as Lagom, but it's still an interesting and relaxing read.

Wake Up, Sleeping Beauty, Vol. 1 (Wake Up, Sleeping Beauty, #1)
Wake Up, Sleeping Beauty vol. 1 by Megumi Morino (PBK)
5 Stars. I brought this home from the library and read it without even glancing at the summary, and don't let the romantic title and summary fool you: this is first and foremost an original and rather chilling GHOST STORY. With its mysterious premise and realistic main male character, the start of the eerie story of shut-in Shizu and scaredy-cat Tetsu was an engrossing one that found me reluctant to put it down and finishing well past bedtime. I can't wait to get my hands on the next volume and see how things progress!

The Chestnut King (100 Cupboards Book 3)
The Chestnut King by N.D. Wilson (PBK)
During my 3-week January-February flu I decided to finally read the entire 100 Cupboards series. Books 1 & 2 went well, but I've been struggling for about a month now to finish this final Book 3 as I don't think I'm going to like the foreshadowed series end. Still, I'm less than 100 pages away and feel I really should finish it eventually, I've come this far.

(subject to change with my ever-shifting reading whims)
The Little Book of Lykke: The Danish Search for the World's Happiest People
The Little Book of Lykke by Meik Wiking (HBK)
After Hygge comes Lykke!

So what are you reading this week?
